THANK YOU, Starsongsky!

December 30th, 2006

I just bought eight bras and six pairs of panties from Lane Bryant for $36.17. SCORE!

I’m sorry to share too much information, it’s just that this is my brand, and I really, really needed some but was having trouble finding the time to get away to the mall to get some. And lo and behold, makes this post about a glitch in Lane Bryant’s shopping cart, whereby it’s taking 30 percent off of the total order, including the free items in the “buy two get two” promotion. Hot diggity! So now I’m set for a good long while. I kind of wish I’d gotten more, but I suppose there’s a limit to how many bras and panties should arrive on one’s doorstep in one fell swoop.


As you can see, I’m personalizing my laptop properly. I need to come up with a catchy name for it on our internal network. “Diana Prince” seems a little obvious. Am considering buying Sims2 for Mac, now that I have this spiffy new laptop. I can probably find it reasonably cheap on eBay now that it’s been out for a while.


Christmas pics! Here’s my husband and daughter making the traditional Christmas ravioli. Every year my husband makes ricotta cheese from whole milk, parsley, parmesan cheese, and vinegar. He does this the night before and we use it the following day as filling. He also makes sauce from crushed tomatoes, etc., according to his mother’s recipe. Then we make the dough from scratch, and it’s a good family activity to roll it out, cut it, fill it, and seal the ravioli closed. Later we boil ’em up and they’re delicious! We brought some to my dad, too. Maybe it’s not everyone’s traditional Christmas fare, but it’s pretty kid-friendly and crafty, so it’s a good thing to do together, which is what Christmas is all about.


This year was the first year that my daughter not only bought a present for my husband that she thought he might like, but she actually looked around instead of grabbing the first thing off the shelf. And her thoughtful choice?


My dad is great,
My dad is neat.
My dad really
likes to eat.

Hee hee hee!

Hats up for: NY, IL, FL

    Hooray Lane Bryant!

    I love that pic of WW (what I can see of it), where did you find it? I’d love to get a copy of it.

    That bowl is awesome.

      Yeah, the pic’s a little blurry due to my shoddy job steadying the camera. It’s in all its glory here: http://www.scifidesktop.org.uk/Wallpaper/Sci-Fi/Other/Wonderwoman/Wonderwoman(1).htm

      There are a couple of other nifty pics here and here. And of course there’s always this undie set.

      I was going to say something about how since my proportions aren’t quite ideal, maybe I shouldn’t wear this. Then I noticed they’re sold out of the XXL size, which is bigger than I’d need. So clearly there are a lot of woman out there who aren’t letting their size get in the way of their fun. 🙂

      The bowl is awesome. Also, very true! She wanted to get me a knitting book while we were out, but I explained that it had to be a surprise to be a Christmas gift, so she was going to ask Steve to take her out to get one. She forgot by the time we got home. I told Steve, but either he didn’t prod her or she decided she didn’t want to go back out in the pre-Christmas madness. No gift for me from Boo! But I knew she was thinking about it, and it’s the thought that counts. 🙂

    How can you resist the cuteness??? The bowl? Just makes everything taste better, I’m sure….

    I always knew you and the World’s Tallest Christmas Elf would be good at this whole thing!

    Happy Holidays!

    I honestly can’t think of a better name than Diana Prince. JLAer? JSA Secretary? I_Chings_Mod_Girl?
